Allan Border is an elder statesman of Australian cricket. In the twenty years since he retired as captain he’s been one of the game’s closest and most astute observers. His views on cricket – based on his experiences as a player, a captain, a selector and a commentator – are fascinating, forthright and informed by more than three decades of involvement at the game’s highest level.

From the infamous ‘Monkeygate’ saga, to the dumping of Steve Waugh as one-day captain, the rise of India as the dominant power in world cricket, Twenty20, Darren Lehmann’s success as coach and the Australian way of sledging, Cricket As I See It gives us Border’s views on the game he loves.
